SPRING CREEK, MILLVILLE, MN
The TPJ Racing team posted top scores of the season with both riders at round 6 at Spring Creek in Milleville, MN. This crazy season is halfway over, and while some riders are getting tired Derek Kelley and Matt Hubert are finding their groves and giving 100%. An effort that is paying off at the finish line.
Derek Kelley #73 returned to racing this past weekend with a vengeance
after suffering injury at Red Bud. Kelley experienced a brief bout of bad luck
during qualifying but was able to recover quickly and secure a starting gate for
the main Motos of the day. Though his shoulder isn’t fully healed, he was able
to go 19/17 respectively in Motos 1 &2 securing his season first top 20th finish,
and now has 6 precious points by his name.
Matt Hubert #647 slid into a 24th qualifying position with a 2.16 lap time;
locking up a decent gate pick for Moto 1. Hubert crashed and lost his exhaust
pipe during Moto 1; luckily, the team was able to help him rebound and line up
for Moto 2. With the bike ready to go, Hubert launched of the start mid-pack
and climbed his way to his very own season best; 25th in Moto 2. He’s happy
to see the results of all his hard work and looks forward to Washougal and
a top 20 finish.
